Live together in peace... This is an brief snippet of Dr. King's speech while accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. In this speech he explains how we, as humans, have to work together for the greater good. That working together in peace is the only way we will find peace in our communities, states, and country.

"...After contemplation, I conclude that this award which I receive on behalf of that movement is a profound recognition that nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time – the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression. Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts. Negroes of the United States, following the people of India, have demonstrated that nonviolence is not sterile passivity, but a powerful moral force which makes for social transformation. Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love..."

What's Happening Tonight

RS2020-1348 - I've sponsored a Resolution honoring the life of Mr. Yusef Harris.

BL2021-961 This ordinance, as amended, amends Section 13.08.080 of the Metropolitan Code to provide for and regulate the usage of license plate reader (LPR) technology. The Code currently prohibits the operation of LPRs installed onto or within the public right-of-way except for use in conjunction with a vehicle emissions sensor as part of an emissions inspection program authorized under local, state or federal law. This ordinance would replace the provisions of subsection G. of Section 13.08.080 entirely. The ordinance preserves the existing emissions inspection program exception, and adds a new comprehensive regulatory structure for other uses of LPR technology.

BL2021-1055 An ordinance providing the honorary street name designation of "Charles Dungey Way" for a portion of 40th Avenue North.
